The 1970's found most Major League Ballparks converting to plastic seats from wood. This product is crafted from the old, wooden seats. Due to the age of the wood and uniqueness of the seats, no two products will be exactly the same.

Additional Product Information
The original Yankee Stadium opened in 1923 and was nicknamed "The House that Ruth Built" by Fred Lieb, sportswriter and baseball historian. Babe Ruth called Yankee Stadium home from 1923 to 1934, and was integral to the team's first World Series Championship during the Stadium's inaugural season by hitting three home runs in the Series. In fact, old Yankee Stadium was home to 100 World Series games, the most post season games, and the most Championships - 26!. In 1939, Yankee Stadium was the site of Lou Gehrig's famous speech, in which he called himself "the luckiest man on the face of the earth," as he faced terminal illness. This original Yankee Stadium closed after the 1973 season to undergo an extensive two year renovation during which the Yankees played their home games at Shea Stadium. During those two years, plastic seats replaced blue-painted wood seats, some of which are used to craft this item. In 2009 demolition began on old Yankee Stadium and new Yankee Stadium opened in an adjacent space. Three years later, Heritage Park opened on the site of old Yankee Stadium. There, a blue line is interwoven into the grass, outlining the original Yankee Stadium diamond. For more information, please visit Authentication.
